Petition To: Lord Mayor Quirk and Dr Lynham


We ask: Step in to solve Hamilton Rd intersection

As people who work and live in Stafford and Chermside, we ask Lord Mayor Graham Quirk and Dr Anthony Lynham to solve the road safety issue on Hamilton Rd at exit of The Prince Charles Hospital.

Council and State Government have passed the buck on this issue for more than 10 years. Solita Honario was tragically killed at the intersection last year. And 65% of staff surveyed have been involved in or witnessed a near miss at this intersection.

We are residents, hospital staff, and community members all standing together to say that this needs to be fixed now.

We want a solution that involves:
1. Traffic lights.
2. Work started this year.

We don't care who pays. We just want it fixed so that we can all enjoy safe streets.

    I have had near misses exiting work on to Hamilton Rd. We all have the right to journey to and from work, without fear of an accident. Hence work cover. It is not just the poor line of vision due to the rise on Hamilton road, which makes the speed of the an on coming car quite deceptive, but also the cars turning into the campass and the ajaycent road, makes exiting challenging and hazardous. Plus predestrians, due to walk ways, a bus stop and being a dedicated entrance to TPCH entrance, adds to the confusion and challenge to just exit safety from your place of work. Then there are the emergency services to the left of the exit. Adding to the delema. Surely lights at the exit, also synchronised to the fire and ambulance services would be the optimal choice to resolve this problem. Really….how much does a life cost!!

    I am a third year student nurse, while on my placement earlier this year at the chermside community centre. I had to use this intersection every day for 2 weeks and I felt nothing but unsafe every time I had to cross this intersection.

    Rode road also needs lights or a roundabout put in place.
